Are you a young Nigerian whose business has been hit by the economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic? Are you in search of an initiative that can help support your business?
If yes, the FATE Foundation Business Recovery Program is what you need. The event which will run all through 2021 focuses on Nigerian entrepreneurs who have been adversely affected by the pandemic.
About the Business Recovery Program
Launched by Fate Foundation, a Nigerian-based nonprofit organization, the Business Recovery Program is designed to support 2,000 young entrepreneurs, contributing towards a richer, more varied, and more resilient economy.
Recognizing that MSMEs have a crucial role to play in economic recoveries post-COVID, FATE Foundation will provide a holistic package of support delivered to selected entrepreneurs across Nigeria.
The 4-week online event, comprising Digital Transformation Workshop, Resilience Building Series, Remote Consulting & Advisory services, and Funding Linkages, is scheduled to run through Tuesdays to Fridays (10:00 am – 2:00 pm).
The Business Recovery Program is funded by the Standard Chartered Foundation, a project that is part of a global scheme to tackle inequality.
A core initiative to enable success is effectively engaging the staff members of Standard Chartered Bank Nigeria and this volunteer engagement strategy document outlines the program timelines, process, and how staff members can be involved.
